You will need to fill us all in on a little more details about your tank. Such as: size,
amount of light, filtration, types and numbers of fish in the tank
Say if we gave you advice to buy any of the plants listed above and you keep a number of
silver dollars in the tank, your fish will be well fed and you'd be out $$$. See my point?
